What is CBD Tea?

If you seek a fun and healthier way to use CBD – compared to other methods like vaping – consider CBD Teas. The CBD-tea mix could help get your energy up for the day and, as well, calm your mind and nerves for a long night’s rest. 

CBD tea is simply a blend of Cannabidiol (commonly called CBD) and tea leaves. This all-natural combo assembles all the attractive therapeutic benefits of CBD and herbal tea in your small tea mug. This near-flawless union promotes a healthy mind and body with every sip.

CBD tea comes in small packs, like your regular tea bags. 

Unlike when I first had CBD tea, the products have become increasingly popular. The bags weren’t as available as they get now. Alternatively, I made my CBD teas by simply brewing CBD oil into my tea. Yeah, it works as great.

Who still needs to know what CBD means? 

Perhaps, nobody. 

Otherwise, CBD is a compound extracted from the cannabis plant – both hemp and marijuana.

Although experts say cannabis contains hundreds of other compounds, CBD has gained the most acceptance, medically, legally, and otherwise.  Why so? 

Perhaps, because unlike the controversial ‘high’-causing compound – called THC – in the plant, CBD is non-intoxicating and safe. You really won’t feel any particularly strong effect, no matter how much you use. 

Federally, CBD extracted from hemp is legal, while marijuana-sourced CBD is prohibited. The crux of the matter is the THC content, which is higher in marijuana than in hemp. 

In fact, in the US, ‘hemp’ refers to products with not more than .3 percent THC concentration – a percentage too insignificant to cause a high. 

That said, note that CBD-THC regulations differ across state laws, though. Thankfully, CBD is legal in Houston, Texas. So running afoul of the law was never a worry. 

Why CBD tea? 

Until the results started trickling in, I never took CBD seriously. People hardly did. 

For many years, legal-restrictions had limited research into cannabis and its products, including CBD. Information was scarce. The media demonized the compound and its users. 

The whole cannabis concept was a valid no-no for me – definitely not smoking.  The testimonies were too good to be true either. 

Lately, that has changed. With increasing research and more user testimonies, people know better.

Informed by early reports from CBD research, experts think CBD may help manage certain health conditions, including:

Note – the FDA, in 2018, approved the use of Epidiolex for the treatment of two rare forms of epilepsy in children, Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut syndromes. 

Besides these forms of epilepsy, the researchers think more evidence is needed to make conclusive statements about other acclaimed CBD benefits. Well, all the firsthand experiences cannot all be phony or a mere coincidence.

However, with increasing research and anecdotal reports, the FDA may soon bow to the rising pressure to recognize CBD as a prescription drug for other health conditions.

Sublingual Vs. CBD Teas

Sublingual dosage means administering drugs through the glands beneath the tongue. 

Placing CBD oil under the tongue is an easy way to use the oil. I found this method delivered faster results than oral doses, like with teas. The effects kick in in no time – typically around 20 minutes.

Experts’ explanation says using CBD sublingually speeds absorption. The compound bypasses the digestive tract and goes directly into the bloodstream.

CBD Teas introduce a whole different experience

First, unlike the sublingual administration, drinking CBD tea takes a longer time to digest. The effects delay, though they last longer than sublingual doses.

One thing I find exciting about CBD tea is that it allows you to personalize your experience. They come in different tea flavors – from peppermint to chamomile and what have you.

Away from teas, there are several other ways to use CBD, from smoking to mixing it into meals.

CBD Tea Recommendations 

Here are some recommendations for your next teacup

  • Chamomile CBD Tea

Here’s a premium tea option derived basically from the chamomile flower’s petal. Its flavor mimics that of crisp green apple. The tasteful sunny golden hue and stroke of floral aroma leaves a desirable mind-soothing property. 

CBD chamomile tea not only delivers calm after a long day but also prepares your mind and body for a long peaceful night’s sleep. 

  • Peppermint CBD Tea

Peppermint oil and CBD oil mix is an exciting pair. The tasteful peppermint oil coats CBDs soured taste, leaving a desirable appeal. 

CBD-peppermint tea comes with a similar flavorful effect. This tea comes with a mind- and mouth-refreshing flavor. Besides keeping your mind alert, its minty flavor fights bad breath keeping your mouth fresh for a good part of the morning.

In itself, peppermint tea may also reduce pain and soothe digestion, an excellent pair for CBD’s therapeutic goals.

  • Ginger Tea

CBD oil and ginger tea may be another vital consideration. Naturally, ginger tea comes with a potent flavor with earthy notes. Ginger tea is a product of dried or fresh ginger roots.

Ginger tea aid digestion. CBD does the same. Also, both ingredients may reduce inflammation and pain.

Wrap up

Serve your CBD infused hot tea and enjoy all the exciting benefits of the all-natural CBD and herbal mix.

Prefer pre-made CBD tea if you wish to spend less time on your tea – particularly before stepping out in the morning. 

Yes, you can make a CBD oil-tea mix yourself. I did, for the most part. Later, I found premade CBD infused tea bags are more convenient and somewhat more comfortable to prepare.
